giveaway!


Hello, my name is Debby and I'm a stash horder! I like to be neat and tidy (ish) but my propensity to keep things 'just in case' has meant that over the years I've been crafting my collection of craft items has grown out of control! I took last year's Online Card Class kick start which was filled with inspirational ideas on how to get your mojo going. One of the elements of the class was organising your craft space and knowing what you have. With that aim I set about tackling my patterned paper collection; I went through and cut down part used pieces of 12x12 papers into 6x6 pieces which I find more useful for card making. I have more paper than I could ever use in a million years so I have collected together some piles of about 100 6x6 pieces to give away! The papers come from the usual big name Paper Crafting brands but are mainly from older collections.

I'm trying to be realistic in what time I have to tackle my stash but my aim over the next few weeks/months is to sort out what I still want to keep and what I want to giveaway. I'm starting today with my paper giveaway and due to weight this giveaway is restricted to UK followers only. Sorry international friends, but your time will come; once I've tackled the paper mountain I'm planning on the embellishment breeding ground next and being lighter in weight I will post those items anywhere :)

So if you are one of my followers living in the UK and fancy a stack of 6x6 papers then please leave a comment below :)

Edited to add - this giveaway is now closed.

Hi Debbie, sounds like you're doing exactly what I've been up to. I've decided everything has to earn its place in my stash, the trouble is you can always think of a reason whey you need to keep something and struggle to find the reason to give it away! Good luck with the sorting and thanks for the chance to share in your stash, Rebecca x x x

It must be this time of year, I had a bit of a clear out/reshuffle yesterday! And yet I'd be willing to help you with your plight! ;-) Thanks for the chance Debby!

Love Beth xx

Hi Debbie. I made an effort last year and promised myself I wouldn`t buy any more papers until my pile had gone down. Trouble is I get bored using the same papers over and over again.
So, as my stash has diminished a little bit I`ll be quite willing to take yours off your hands lol.

Hi Debbie. Although I only have a single cupboard in which to store my crafty bits I'd love the chance to win these from you. Your cards are always so wonderful so no doubt these papers are too. Thank you, Anita xx

Hi Debbie, I know the feeling of cutting down, have just sorted through my stamps can't believe how many I've not used in ages! Thanks for the great idea, I've been given 12x12 papers as birthday presents and just feel overwhelmed by them, never thought of cutting them down ready to use! Thanks so much for the chance to add to my stash!

Hi Debby - I am in Ireland but just wanted to say you have inspired me to get cracking with decluttering my own stash. Happy destashing!

Lovely idea...you've inspired me along with others (hahaha) to declutter and organise..an amazingly difficult thing to do with crafting as you get side tracked so easily heehee!!!

Debby I so understand about the overwhelming amount of paper we hoard. Thank you for inspiring me to do the same. I am an International visitor but just want to drop a note to say thank you and wish you luck.

Hi Debbie, these would be wonderful! Now where would I put them......I'm sure I can claim a few more inches from my husband lol

When I need to make a card 6x6 papers are so easy to use and I don't have to feel bad about cutting into a piece of 12x12 that I think I might need for my scrapbooking. I would love the chance to play with your paper excess.

Hi Debby, I think I may be one of the very few seasoned stampers who do not have a large stash of patterned paper.... And I'm not sure why as I have more than one or two stamps.... !!!! Thank you for your generous giveaway - I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I don't live in the UK, but I like your idea of cutting the pieces into 6 x 6 pieces... maybe that would show me that those older scraps are either going to make the cut or not...

 
At 27 January 2013 at 19:51 , Blogger PJ said...

I don't live in the UK either but I've been doing some January organizing as well and I think your idea of cutting 12" papers into 6x6 is awesome!! {slap forehead} Why didn't I think of that?! Where's my paper cutter...... thanks for the inspiration! ;)

Hi Debbie, I sorted some of my stash to give to the grandchildren to play with, put it in a box, and slowly but surely ended up putting most back in my drawers, gulp! Don't judge me, my name is Jane and I'm a craft addict.

Debby, I admire your resolve yo actually tackle your craft room. I love admiring papers for the design, tactile elements and the different colour schemes. I actually thought of getting some cheap frames so I could put my favouties on the wall to admire and hopefully inspire me. I live in UK so I hope I'm lucky to win some for my empty frames!!!

I prefer collector vs hoarder! Good for you that you are strong enough to part with some of your stash! I do like your idea of cutting to 6x6 - I may do this too!

I'm not in the UK but really wanted to stop in and say good for you Debby! I need to do the same. I might like hanging out in my craft room a bit more then lol.

Good luck with your culling.
